The RSA-Kress New York Public Library Grant supports a one-month residency in New York City by a member of the Renaissance Society of America for the purposes of Art History research.

The residency comes with a $3,000 stipend for researchers already in North America and $4,000 for those traveling from elsewhere. 

The Library's special collections hold a number of items of interest for Renaissance scholars in the Spencer Collection, Manuscript and Archives Division and Rare Book Division. Highlights include the 1481 copperplate edition of Dante’s Divina Commedia,  Albrecht Dürer’s three great woodcut albums, and account books of British nobility that illustrate day-to-day life.
